First Drafts


Ernest Hemingway once said ‘The first of anything is shit’ and he was honestly right. When I read over my first drafts, I cringe so much. They’re just awful. Last year my roommate asked me if she could what was I writing and I (very stupidly) let her read my first draft. She’s never asked since to read anymore. First drafts are merely just churning out word after word, sentence after sentence, page after page and it can take years of editing and deleting and rewriting to get it write. The first page of The High Price of Gullibility I’ve rewritten at least 8 times because when my friend read the first page out loud, I knew it off by heart. So to any first drafters out there, keep going, you’ll get there oneday! AJ xx
